The Los Angeles Angels are trying trade Bobby Abreu, according to Jon Heyman. The Angels would have to swallow the vast majority of the remaining $9 million on his contract to find a taker, Heyman adds:

Abreu, the 38 year-old 16-year vet, is a career .293 / .397 / .481 hitter and has generated nearly 60 Wins Above Replacement while spending time with just 4 clubs -- the Houston Astros (2 years), Philadelphia Phillies (9 years), New York Yankees (3 years), and most recently, the Los Angeles Angels.

Now that the Angels have confidence in Kendrys Morales, the Angels just don't have enough at bats for Abreu, prompting their pursuit of a trade partner.

    "...Knobler added later on that many around baseball are convinced that the Angels will trade designated hitter Bobby Abreu, and says that the Angels could kill two birds with one stone. The fact that the Angels already have so much money committed to left handed relievers can make you wonder why they want more. Is there something that they know that we don't?"

    "It's going to be tough to unload him, but it's not like Abreu is a complete wet noodle. Abreu does have some redeeming qualities, so let's take a look at the pros, cons, and potential trade partners for the man that the Philadelphia Phillies acquired for Kevin Stocker back in 1997."
